You know a company is pulling all the stops when they evoke same of the most famous pop culture references. Usually, it’s a big win – it’s a huge success when you no longer remember what was actually first: the reference or the company?
I mean, I know Santa has been around for some time, but when I was a kid I literally thought that he was the chairman of Coca Cola. You get the gist. Today’s protagonist, Stravia, has gone for one of the greats – Superman. With the image of a Clark Kent lookalike and the “Let us power up your investment” motto, Stravia Biz Inc. is clearly trying to boost our confidence in their services. Should we do that? Let’s take a closer look.
First of all, Stravia Biz Inc. is a Forex market oriented Panamanian company that is 2 years old and can pride itself in a pretty decently designed website. As it’s usually the case, Panama – a tax haven – is just a location, since the IP leaves one with a US address and according to the “About us” section Stravia is “active in the London and NY sessions”. Although the company reportedly was founded in 2012, the domain, stravia.biz, was registered on November 30, 2012, so one may conclude that Stravia has just begun its online journey. Perhaps that is due to the fact that Stravia’s investments “have performed incredibly well over the last 2 years, with 2012 being the most successful year so far” and the company “[has] seen rapid growth since September this year”.
What should be pointed out is that despite the freshness of the site, it is sufficiently protected against DDoS attacks (Black Lotus Communications) and has a correctly implemented Rapid SSL Certificate (GeoTrust, Inc.) that should last at least two years (bought on 12/8/2012, expires on 12/13/2014). Let’s appreciate that since some older programs still have major issues when it comes to their websites’ security. Not to mention the fact that most pages struggle with the right color schemes (Stravia’s may not be the most original or appealing one, but at least it’s consistent), good organization (we have all the crucial sections here: “About Us”, Calculator”, “Get Started”, “FAQ”, and so on) or explaining the plans exhaustively. However, one could only hope for some better “Contact” part of the website since, for now, not only is it hard to find, but one may also feel disappointed with the scarcity of options, namely a generic contact form. You can also call Stravia’s UK or US office (US: +1 302 261 9579, UK: +44 20 3286 8879), but we all know it’s rather pricey.
